The famous Ootylake stretches just behind the central bus stand, in an irregular 'L' shape, for about 2.75 kms in length and varying distances in width.This lake was artificially formed by John Sullivan, the founder of Ooty, in 1823-25 by damming the mountain streams flowing down the Ooty valley. At the far end is the Boat House, where all kinds of boats are available for hire from eight in the morning to six in the evening. Surrounded by lofty eucalyptus trees and shrubs the lake is a scenic delight. At the boat house end, there is children's park with a toy train. A deer park is located in the adjacent area. Just outside the Boat house, local ponies are available for jolly rides at a charge.
